25km and 16km trail running events held in the beautiful Currumbin Valley on Queensland's Gold Coast. With challenging yet achievable courses along the buffer track separating the NSW/QLD border this is a unique event not to be missed.
The 3km Dash 4 Duchenne road run is also back for 2019 and is open for kids aged 8 - 14 only. Why is it called the Dash 4 Duchenne? Read on!

Up the Buff Trail Race routes
The 25km Up The Buff Trail Race is a good one. We admit it’s not the easiest 25km you will ever run, but the views are epic, the trails are super fun, and the people on course – volunteers and other runners – are all out there for a good time.
If the 25km scares the pants off of you (assuming you were wearing them to begin with), then the 16km Up The Buff Trail Race might be more your thing. It’s still a little bit hilly, but you miss the delightfully frightening Strawberry Hill, which is something.
There’s no time limit on the 16km either – so there’s no pressure to run fast (unless you’re running with friends and there’s pride at stake!).
A road run for the kids! The 3km Dash for Duchenne is a timed road run held within the Ecovillage precinct, and is open to kids aged 8-14 inclusive. All entry money collected for the D4D is going to the Aidan Richardson Trust (ART).
Up The Buff Trail Race is supporting the Aidan Richardson Trust – Aidan is fighting Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy – and what better way to draw attention to a muscle-destroying disease that affects kids than by getting kids moving.
